    Hi I'M Looking For A Penpal

    I've had a few penpals when I was younger. I'm still writing letters so some of my relatives because I like the old fashioned way :). It doesn't matter where you're from! I live in Canada but originally I'm from Europe. Drop me a line if you are interested!

    I am a 16 year old girl from the netherlands.

    I like creative stuff like crocheting, crafting and photography. I would like to share my daily live with someone (boy or girl, don't care). I would like to chat or email. Anyone? :)

    Letting Loose

    I would love to have a penpal, someone who you can talk to just about anything without the fights because that'd be a lot of writing and by the time you're done writing you would be too tired to send it. I would love having a penpal because you can look forward to a person with a...

    Young Man Trapped In Old Man's Body Wants To Talk

    When people see that I am older, they automatically have preconceived ideas about "over the hill," "out of touch," "stuck in the 50s," or other such age related thoughts. Nothing could be further from the truth. I'm quite young in my head but I'm trapped inside this old man's...

    I think having a pen pal is a brilliant idea.

    Someone from somewhere else that you can share experiences and culture and become great friends with. I had a penpal in school and that was pretty cool and I've housed exchange students and have kept in contact with them. So if you're in your 20's and want a penpal from...

    Seeing the word penpal is quite nostalgic

    for a penpal since I enjoy daddy/daughter roleplaying. A nice older man who knows how to treat a sassy but sweet young girl right. No one too pushy or dominant, prefer gentle and caring. Exchanging naughty emails, maybe meeting if you live nearby. Age and marital status doesn't...
